Courtney A. Lamdin is the executive editor of three weekly newspapers in northwestern Vermont. She has worked as a general assignment reporter for the last nine years, covering everything from the mind-numbing complexities of tax increment financing to the thrilling life (and death) of a pair of wild turkeys said to be terrorizing school children. Lamdin has served on the Vermont Press Association board of directors for six years and was named a New England First Amendment Coalition investigative reporting fellow in 2015. She’s most proud of her four years covering a hazing scandal on the high school football team. Her reporting won her a first- place NENPA award in 2016, helped train Vermont teachers in child abuse reporting procedures and was featured in the ESPN documentary “Outside the Lines”. More recently, Lamdin’s work investigating the shady leadership of a youth football program led police to charge the team president with felony embezzlement. As much as it sounds like she hates football, Lamdin is actually a Patriots fan and likes going to games whenever her uncle will sell her his season tickets.
